Danger ! Scary Dog

You can't pick up a food magazine or newspaper these days without some mention of food trucks or carts, some of them legal and some not. People looking to eat cheap or make a living in this crazy economy have taken to the streets. I've always had a hidden urge to run a hot dog stand so, after reading articles about street vendors in LA Weekly and the NY Times that produce Mexican Style hot dogs, I thought I would try and come up with dog that could compete. These dogs are also known as scary or danger dogs because of the clandestine nature of production.

My dogs are probably not so scary because I used products I had on hand in the house. If I was making these on the street I might not be using organic hot dogs, apple wood smoked bacon and whole wheat buns. On the other hand, that might be a good selling point here in the Bay Area. I added some sharp cheddar, pickled jalapenos, barbecue sauce and a short shake of hot sauce. Danger Will Robinson! Pass the Pepcid AC.
Not so danger dog

Let me know when you open your stand - I'll be first in line for the organic dogs, bacon, local cheese, etc. Looks wonderful to me, but then I'm the kind of woman who really only goes to baseball games for the hot dogs. :-)
